AC IV: Black Flag - Edward Kenway

Huzzah for "Better Late Than Never" posts! I've had this one sitting on my computer for a while ... just wanted to wait after the new layout and the Innkeeper stuff were done before posting Edward. I'm absolutely in love with Assassin's Creed IV - Black Flag. The naval gameplay is amazeballs.Truth! The first blond assassin in the series which threw me off a bit when I saw the first images. But now Edward has become my favourite character.

This painting underwent a few big changes. I initially painted him in his assassin's gear, but I actually like him much better as a pirate. I also liked the tattoo's from the trailer a lot more than the tattoo Edward has in-game (seems there are quite a few characters with the same tattoo, so I didn't think it was original enough). Plus, the tattoo in this painting includes the Jackdaw, so there.

Loads of details crammed into this painting, which took ages to get done and zoomed in at 200% while painting to get it right, even though the original size of the painting is pretty frikkin' huge.

Anyway, the finished version of the painting is posted here.
